    It takes energy to split water into hydrogen, it's going to take energy to compress these elements into this new fuel. With losses, this will take more energy to produce than it will return in power for the ship.

    Pointless.

    Unless they supplement it with "free" external energy like solar to make up the shortfall.
    Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

    And why do they need an expensive flying model airplane to test this? If they wanted to test it's affects on a 2 stroke engine why not just by the engine instead of the engine, plane, radio controllers, time assembling the aircraft, drive time to the R/C airport, etc...
